Red Art Games and Pugware have announced they’ll be releasing the action-adventure Skautfold: Shrouded in Sanity on the Switch eShop next week on February 11th. The PlayStation 4 version will also receive a physical release.
The title is a 2D pixel release, previously released on platforms like Steam, and has apparently been inspired by survival-horror series such as the original Resident Evil, Dark Souls and even the psychological horror action-adventure GameCube classic, Eternal Darkness.
It’s previously had a “very positive” reception. Here’s a description (via Steam), along with a look:
Set in the alternative historical setting of 1897 Angelic Empire of Britannia, your contract will order you to eliminate the source of the unnatural fog enveloping the Berelai Manor.
Discover the secrets of the estate, as you look for answers among the violent inhabitants.
A strange and repelling madness took hold of the servants roaming the halls, and they will attack on sight, for their madness is one rooted in a deeper understanding of cosmic insignificance.
To repel the maddening horrors, your Iaito cane, and Waltham A9 hand canon will aid you. To mend your injuries your Vitae concoctions will offer healing.
Beware, whatever unearthly events have transpired, your sanity will be tested as the truth unfolds in this hungry all-consuming Fog. First part of the Skautfold game series.
